As these modern furnishings heat and burn, they off-gas the chemicals from which they are made, including benzene, formaldehyde and other carcinogens. The resulting chemical laden smoke creates a toxic rich environment.
When entering the space to extinguish the fire, firefighters are immersed in this toxic smoke and gas. The chemical carcinogens adhere to their turnouts and other gear. Once out of the fire environment they are still susceptible to absorbing these toxins through our skin and inhaling them as they continue to off-gas from our gear. In addition, these carcinogens become spread throughout the inside of the response vehicles. That’s where Cousino Medical Services can help!
The same terminal cleaning process we utilize for bacteria and viruses has exceptional results in decontaminating these deadly toxins. With the combination of our extensive hand cleaning process and our SteraMist Binary Ionization Technology, we get your vehicles back to a clean and healthy environment. Cousino Medical Services utilizes state-of-the-art disinfecting solutions throughout our hand cleaning process and then follows up with the SteraMist disinfecting spray on all surfaces. We then circulate the disinfecting fog through the air circulation system to assure a complete decontamination process.
